Help SVdP provide clothing to those in need!

St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County's Community Center connects clients with direct services, including access to free, gently-used clothes. By sorting and organizing donations, you will help SVdP distribute clothing to adults and children.

Volunteers will be asked to:

  • Check all clothes to make sure that they are gently-worn;
  • Determine the proper destination of the incoming donations - either to our free Clothing Closet, which is utilized by our adult clients, the children's room in our Women's Center, or to one of our three thrift stores (out-of-season or very dressy clothes);
  • Sort clothes by gender and type or size; and
  • Tidy up and help to restock the Clothing Closet or children's room.

Time: 2-3 hour shifts are available between 9am and 1pm Tuesday - Saturday

Commitment: One time and ongoing volunteers are welcome. This is a great group service opportunity for six to eight people.

Volunteers will attend an orientation and receive training on their first day of service.
